Reservation argument continues

Does Madmohan Singh even know the meaning of affirmative action - http://www.rediff.com/money/2007/jul/06pmo.htm
The Prime Minister's Office has summoned the Confederation of Indian Industry, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry and the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India on July 14 to submit a progress report on the affirmative action taken by them.

After interfering with the working of our educational institutions, he now wants to interfere with the industry.

Dr Singh (I think Oxford or Cambridge should revoke his degree, going by his dumbness),

The industry does not care about caste or creed or even nationality(Air Deccan Operations chief is a Western chap, I am not sure if he still is after the merger with Kingfisher airlines). It wants to get its work done. Its more interested in doing business and performance. You are just being a cog in the wheel by such stupid hairbrained schemes like reservations in private industry (one of the few bastions left which are improving instead of degrading). Dont you think you should be better concentrating on things like infrastructure and law and order. If these things show an improvement, everyone benefits, and mostly the poor - whom you claim to represent - benefit. I understand that you want to deflect attention from other failures and show reservations as a success or something, but stop raising the reservation cabal where it does not need to be done.

Would like to know what you think of Madmohan as a person? I believe he was always more of a bureaucrat than an academic, and his accomplishments as an economist (whatever they are) have been vastly exaggerated.
This is the same person who served as the RBI governor and deputy chairperson of Planning Commission during the Indira and Rajiv Gandhi era, and the spineless inverebrate that he is, he implemented their disastrous socialist economic policies. As the FM under PVNR, he opened up the economy as desired by PV. Now as PM he is back to pseudo socialist policies espoused by Sonia. Not only is he spineless, but also intellectually dishonest, and a chameleon. I don't know why the Indian middle class holds him in such esteem. At least on the basis of his performance in the past 3 years, we can safely ascribe to him the label of India's worst and most helpless PM ever.
